charset.conf - Man Page

Configuration file for legacy character set support by Sympa


In some language environments, legacy encoding (character set) is preferred for e-mail messages: For example iso-2022-jp in Japanese language.

charset.conf defines mapping between language context and legacy character set for service messages sent by Sympa.  If you want to enable legacy character set support, simply copy sample charset.conf onto configuration directory:

    # cp $DEFAULTDIR/charset.conf $SYSCONFDIR/charset.conf

And set the legacy_character_support_feature parameter value in sympa.conf to on.


If you are planning to upgrade Sympa earlier than 5.3a.8, original charset.conf is required to convert shared documents during upgrade process.
